The Matter of the Mind

De
344 pages
The Matter of the Mind addresses and illuminates the relationship between psychology and neuroscience by focusing on the topic of reduction.
  • Written by leading philosophers in the field
  • Discusses recent theorizing in the mind-brain sciences and reviews and weighs the evidence in favour of reductionism against the backdrop of recent important advances within psychology and the neurosciences
  • Collects the latest work on central topics where neuroscience is now making inroads in traditional psychological terrain, such as adaptive behaviour, reward systems, consciousness, and social cognition.
